Oregon Zoo’s Lion Pride Grows
Neka, a 6-year-old African lion at the Oregon Zoo, gave birth to three healthy cubs on September 7. Veterinarians conducted their first examination of the 12-day-old cubs, and found that all three cubs are girls! Staff will continue to monitor the cubs closely, as one cub was weak and dehydrated. She will receive supplemental care and feedings as needed, but otherwise caretakers hope to take as much of a hands-off approach as possible.
